TeamOne have come out on top in the North American closed qualifier for ESL Challenger Rotterdam, recovering in the lower bracket and defeating Nouns and ATK en route to confirming their spot at the $100,000 tournament.
The Brazilian team dealt a heartbreak loss in a rematch against Gareth “MisteM” Ries‘ men, who had edged past BHOP in their opening match of the qualifier before beating TeamOne in relatively one-sided fashion to claim a spot in the grand final.

The second go-around yielded different results though, with TeamOne posting an almost equally strong showing by securing 16-9 and 16-10 wins on Overpass and Mirage to earn their spot at the event in the Netherlands.
The tournament offers TeamOne the opportunity to extend their stay in Europe following the IEM Rio Americas RMR, which will play out the week prior to the ESL Challenger LAN.
That extended practice time and initial stint on the Old Continent will be massively beneficial for Maluk3‘s side ahead of their appearance in Rotterdam, which will be their first LAN against international opposition since IEM Cologne Play-In in 2021.
